 Securing Vote Tallies

Network World Fusion talks about securing vote tallies.

"Any system of vote counting that relies on completely proprietary (secret) programs is potentially vulnerable to abuse. The underlying computer programs controlling how marks on ballots are counted in Vermont are proprietary (they are owned by Diebold), but the technicians who prepare the configuration tables relating a position on a ballot to a particular name work for an independent consultancy in Massachusetts and their configuration tables are open for inspection."
